The Linen Peddler

The Linen Peddler meddles and peddles in fine hand printed linens and cottons. Old suitcases carry a cornucopia of bespoke treasures.

Start rummaging and you will find artisan table runners and napkins, decorated with images of ‘Plateau Fruits de Mer’ inspired by warm summer afternoons in the south of France sipping chilled white wine whilst eating lobsters, crabs and prawns from ice cooled platters. Heaven!

Delve a little deeper to unearth wonderfully seductive table napkins depicting delicious vegetables, Beetroots, Artichokes and Asparagus, great for that special occasion or for everyday meal gatherings.

For the coming Autumn/Winter festive season deck your table with a plethora of woodland animal prints inspired by the “Game” season.

For the kitchen The Linen Peddler has produced a range of Linen Tea Towels inspired by utensils and objects found on the laden shelves of the "Traditional General Store" harping back to bygone days.

Hording comes naturally to the Linen Peddler and the eclectic mix of objects, junk and jumble acquired over time is the main influence for her many collections.
